It’s a bit of a Disney week on Mora Pandora as I’m following up Monday’s White Rabbit review with an updated preview of the Pandora Disney Parks collection for SS16! Included are the full set of high-resolution images, additional information and some live images.
This year’s set of Disney Parks charms have some unique and really fun designs, ranging from cute candy pinks to sophisticated rich golds and ambers.
Once again, the release dates for these various charms have been staggered and there are also regional restrictions. I’ve laid them all out here so you can see what is available where, and when!
Pandora Disney Parks Spring/Summer 2016 Preview
A number of these Disney Parks charms have already been released, including those for the North American and Hong Kong Disney resorts. The Hong Kong exclusives are particularly cute.
Now, this murano is quite special, I think – the Luck & Prosperity bead features a beautiful gold and amber design, and an unusual level of detail for a murano glass bead. I love both the meaning behind it and the uniqueness of the design.
This enamel Hong Kong Disneyland Ten year Celebration charm is more par for the course with the Disney Parks beads, featuring the typical deep blue enamel and clear cubic zirconia.
Finally, we have a new pink version of last year’s D23 glittering blue Sleeping Beauty castle.
You can see all the charms really nicely in this live image from Instagram:
All regions – HK, NA and Shanghai
This next set of Disney Parks charms & jewellery will, eventually, be available in all three Disney Parks regions – North America, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
The gorgeous Spaceship Epcot Earth charm offers a floral twist on the regular version of this charm – I love this one, and it’s definitely a pretty design in its own right. I’m tempted by one, although the price tag of $70 USD seems high for what it is, even considering the Pandora Disney branding.
The Marvellous Mickey murano is also available to purchase now, and offers a super cute baby-pink design with different coloured Mickey Mouse silhouettes. I’d have preferred it if it were a Minnie design, as I associate pink more with her – but hey, that’s probably just me stereotyping. ;) This is $55 USD.
The Pink Mickey enamel charm matches a lot of existing Disney Parks merchandise, and is $70 USD.
The Minnie All Around spacer is a nice partner to the existing clear CZ Mickey spacer, although wouldn’t it have been cute with little bows? This one is $55 USD.
You’ll probably have noticed that the next two Shimmering Mickey Swirls pieces have not been released yet – it has been announced that they are releasing in North American Disney Parks locations on the 29th April, so there’s not long to wait now!
The first of them is particularly exciting – a brand new Disney Parks exclusive two-tone bracelet! It has a slightly psychedelic-looking Mickey CZ design on the clasp, set in 14kt gold. If you can’t afford this two-tone version, then there’s always the new silver Mickey Moments charm bracelet, or the regular silver Disney Parks exclusive bracelet, too.
The Shimmering Mickey Swirls clip matches the bracelet, and is also 14kt gold. I don’t know the RRP of this one yet either, but I can only imagine it will be pricey!
The final set of charms are exclusive to the upcoming Disney resort in Shanghai, which is due to open on the 16th of June. As most of these charms are entitled ‘Grand Opening’, I guess these will be available from then.
Let’s start with one of the most impressive pieces – this gorgeous 14kt gold charm, which looks super dramatic in combination with the black enamel! There are little cubic zirconia in the stars and Mickey cut-outs. If money were no object, this would be the one I’d pick to commemorate a trip to Shanghai.
We have another opulent 14kt gold offering in a new version of the Mickey Ear Hat dangle, set with black cubics.
I love the Castle pendants, and the Shanghai one is just as cute and detailed as the others!
Finally, with a very simple design, we have a new engraved version of the Unforgettable Moments dangle.
Just to summarise – the remaining release dates to look forward to are:
- 29th April for the gold Shimmering Mickey Swirls pieces
- 16th June for the Shanghai charms
As I’m sure you could have predicted, I love the new pink Mickey & Minnie pieces – but I have so much pink in my collection already, I just can’t justify it! The new floral Epcot Earth charm is also gorgeous, and I may come back for that one – the price is just super high.
The other one that really catches my eye is the Luck & Prosperity murano, which is such a fun and different glass design. Maybe if I ever do get to visit Hong Kong, I can pick one up…! Any of these charms would make a great momento of a trip to Disney land.
What do you think of these new Pandora Disney Parks designs? Have you purchased any yet, or will you be trying to track them down?
